Director's Bio

After studying theatre and creating the first Black theatre troupe in Paris, Les Griots, Sarah Maldoror studied cinema in Moscow. Her sharp body of work, which consists of 46 films, is the reflection of a bold warrior who is curious, generous, irreverent and who looks out for others, taking poetics beyond every boundary. An outspoken rebel and a resolute humanist, Sarah Maldoror celebrated the engagement of the artist, and art as an act of freedom.
